Project: Bertram 64

Bertram presents the project for a new 64 model, which is set to launch in Fort Lauderdale 2011 end of October and in my understanding should replace the 630 constructed in about fifty units since 2004.  Again designed by Zuccon, with the Ferretti Group team the 64 continues the touches of new president Alton Herndon who puts his experience to good use to make this new Bertram one of the best sport fishing yachts in this size.  These touches are already visible as the recent improvements shown in the 540, and will be seen in other models of the range. For the new 64 a curved smooth reverse shear line is shown again, but the designers also opted for a massive aft deck fish battling area which measures just short of two hundred square feet. The 64 will also involve options as large view windows in the center or a clean hull as the above rendering shows.  Accommodation details have not yet been announced.  Power is from standard twin Cats 1676hp or optional 1925 or 2001hp MTU.  With twin Cats 1925hp top speed is 40 knots.
